AF is here. I knew she would be, and I am ok with it. Just ready to get to the next cycle. For some reason, I am really ready for this one. Not really sure why though.

I am trying to decide if I want to go back to SC alone again. The plan was to go down sometime in the next week or so with dh and mom was going to make a big dinner for all the August birthdays. (dh, my brother, and my nephew all have August b-days) But it looks like there is just not going to be a way for dh to go. He has been working his ass off, and now he has to go in on his days off to work on qualifications. So we really don't know when the next time he gets a day off will be. He told me to go ahead and go, but I dont know if I will. Although the idea of sitting at home with no adult conversation for days and days doesn't sound all that great either. I know mom would love to see Evan, but just don't know if I want to make the trip. I guess since dh isn't going though, I can actually go on a weekend if I want to and the kids won't have school. I'll figure it out in the next day or so I guess.

I almost wish that dh WAS on a ship again at times. He loved his job before. He was a signalman, but they got rid of signalmen, so he was forced to pick something else. So he ended up getting into information technology. He thought he would get to work on computers, but instead, he got stuck in the communications side, and he is miserable. I think part of it is that he is working with Submariners, and he is a surface guy. Two totally different worlds. He was much much happier on a ship, but didn't want to be away from us on deployments, so he went for shore duty. Now he has 2 more years of it. He likes being able to be with us, but I know he would truely be happier on a ship. Part of me wants to tell him to try to get new orders and try to get on a ship, but part of me keeps saying 2 years really isn't that much longer. Why rush him back to a ship????

It sucks about AF but I get the feeling she won't be back next month anyway - as if she'd DARE!

It's really sad that your dh hates his job:( But being away for weeks or months at a time seems like a really big ask of you and Evan and the next little one. I get so bored and lonely when K is away for a few days but I guess I am thinking of my own shortcomings with regards to patience here...
